Book Review - Hatter M Volume 1: The Looking Glass Wars

Put to rest any delusions or disinformation you have of the tea-guzzling madman of faux literary history and prepare to expand your consciousness as the saga of Hatter Madigan and his relentless search for the lost Princess of Wonderland unfolds in Volume 1 of the Hatter M graphic novel series! In Frank Beddor's bestselling The Looking Glass Wars, Royal Bodyguard Hatter Madigan was ordered by Queen Genevieve to take Princess Alyss and leave Wonderland after a bloody palace coup staged by the murderous Redd. But while escaping through the Pool of Tears (the portal connecting Wonderland to our world) crushing centrifugal force pulled them apart, and Alyss was lost. In this first volume of the geo-graphic parallel adventure trilogy, Hatter finds himself in Paris, France in the year 1859 shockingly separated from the child he had been sworn to protect. Hatter must now embark upon a non-stop quest, crisscrossing the globe for 13 years in search of his lost Princess.

My Review
I had read the books by Frank Beddor and loved them, i came across this graphic novel in the library so thought i would have a look. I must admit i'm not a fan of graphic novels, but the artwork in this is very good, but i found it a bit confusing as to what was going on. If i hadn't already known the story from the novel, i think i would have given up, but as i had, i could just about work out what was going on. But for what it was, it was worth a look.

My Rating
I would give this 4/10, too confusing for me, but if your into graphic novels or loved the novels it's worth a look.
